Beginning Quilting - A Learn-to-Quilt Program



This class will introduce you to quilting by machine and rotary cutting. You will learn tips and tricks, beginning with choosing fabrics, to make your quilting journey a successful one. 

You must be comfortable with your sewing machine to take this class. You also must have a ¼” foot for the machine before the second class. If you don’t already have one, we will help you determine which foot will fit your machine if you bring in the shank from your machine. Better yet, bring in the whole machine at least two weeks before the first class. If need be, we can order a foot for you. 

You will make a baby- or lap-size quilt. All fabrics must be purchased from this store. We will start rotary cutting in the first class so you will not need to bring your machine to that class. 

Supply List  - These are items you must bring to class

• Notebook paper and pencil 

• Sewing machine, cord, foot control, a walking foot, and a ¼” foot (or you can use a classroom machine at no charge)

• Rotary mat, cutter, and two rulers—6” x 24” and 6” x 12” 

• 100% cotton thread

• Basic sewing kit—pins, tape measure, seam ripper, scissors 

• New size 80/12 sewing machine needles—universals or microtex sharps 

DON'T BUY FABRIC BEFORE CLASS.  WE WILL GO OVER WHAT TO BUY THE FIRST DAY WE MEET.
